Local responses to a global monetary policy: The regional structure of financial systems
This paper contrast the existence of different regional effects of an homogeneous monetary policy and study the local characteristics that underlie these differential responses. To this purpose I use regional data and estimate a structural vector autoregression model (VAR) to characterize the different regional responses. Afterwards I use the estimated responses to analyze if the responses depends on the regional characteristics of the financial system, like industry composition, firms size or banking sector composition.
